2023 Baxter Trophy Winners - Clayton Turvey and Joanne Morris-Bourne (Willesley Park Golf Club)

LRLCGA Noticeboard : 2023 Baxter Trophy Winners - Clayton Turvey and Joanne Morris-Bourne (Willesley Park Golf Club)

Over the last two Sundays some excellent mixed foursomes golf has been played at Willesley Park Golf Club, as 36 pairs from across Leicestershire and Rutland competed for the prestigious Baxter Trophy.  

 

The weather was fantastic for both days of competition, although the first Sunday was exceptionally warm and the second very cold, but the sun shone on both days and the course was in excellent condition.  Some very good scores were recorded with the four qualifying semi finalists from the first week being Jack Merry and Maz Sharpe (Rothley Park) Gross 70, Clayton Turvey and Joanne Morris-Bourne (Willesley Park) Gross 71, Peter Brough and Carolyn Parkes-Walley (Lutterworth) Gross 73, and David Smith and Karen Haynes (Luffenham Heath) Gross 73.

 

In the first semi final Luffenham Heath beat Rothley Park on the 17th (3 and 1) and in the second Willesley Park beat Lutterworth (4 and 3) to set up a final between Luffenham Heath and Willesley Park.  The final was closely fought and went to the 18th but Willesley Park, on their home course, finished 2 Up to win the 2023 Baxter Trophy.

 

Thanks to Willesley Park Golf Club for hosting the competition and for making everyone so welcome and to the referees Phil Askew and Angela Allington. Congratulations to all those players who reached the semi finals and particular congratulations to the eventual winners Clayton Turvey and Joanne Morris-Bourne from Willesley Park Golf Club.
